Anyone run various ammo and specific grain ammo thru a 16" 308 Vepr carbine? I haven't shot my Vepr in about a year and was gonna buy a bulk lot of 308 for it. Does the 308 Vepr do better with lighter or heavier grain bullets? I think before, I ran 145gr Wolf thru it, and it ran ok, but would sticking with 145-147gr ammo be better, or step up to 155, 168, or 175 grain bullets? Thanks

The barrel is 1/12 twist. The lighter the better. 145-168gr max.You should get a better MOA with the lower 145-150gr.
